No, John the baptist was not a disciple of Jesus.

Christians believe that John the Baptist had a specific role ordained by God to foretell the coming of the Messiah. The New Testament Gospels speak of this role eg

and in Luke 1:77 as being " Luk 1:77 To give knowledge of salvation to His people By the remission of their sins, "
